In stark contrast to the the urban chaos of Bangkok, Hua Hin is a chilled beach getaway that happens to be second home for the Thai elite. A three hour drive from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport gets you to this resort town.
As soon as we arrived, we were reminded of Southern Goa in India, which has an idyllic vibe and a tonne of scattered resorts. Much like its counterpart in the subcontinent, Hua Hin also makes for a great short break. Especially for vacationers who are within a five-hour flight radius from Bangkok.
We would recommend spending at least four nights in Hua Hin.
